OMG! I just got my holiday fabric that I designed. It turned out cute if I do say so myself. LOL. I got it on the Celosia Velvet fabric, because that fabric is so awesome. Here is the link if you are interested: https://www.spoonflower.com/en/fabric/10519423-holiday-holiday-wow-by-kristinbell

This pic doesn’t exactly capture the colors. The background is a pale blue and the other colors are quite vibrant! Spoonflower fabric sometimes takes a bit of time to get depending, but they have been shipping pretty fast lately. Plan ahead!

Same Site! New Look!

Kristin Bell

Hi Everyone! It is me, Kristin! I updated the blog with a new design/layout, but it is still me. You can find the search button and other links at the bottom of the page under the plus (+) sign. Hopefully the site will be easier to view. The other WordPress template was so old that some of the posts were really getting messed up. LOL. I still can’t do anything about the stupid ads that show up unless I pay more for my site. WordPress used to be ad free which is one of the reasons I started my blog here. Now ads are everywhere! GAH! Thanks for stopping by!

Donations Go to Black Trans Fund

Kristin Bell

So, I can’t do much, but I want to donate any money I make in June through my teepublic shop to the Black Trans Fund with Groundswell. https://groundswellfund.org/black-trans-fund/ I just found out about this organization, and they seem pretty great.

Donating directly is great too, but if you’d like to buy some merch and have a portion go to the Black Trans Fund, hit up my shop here: https://www.teepublic.com/user/kristinbell

Teepublic is also donating one medical grade mask for every mask that is purchased through the site, and they are supportive of BLM.

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all safe and well. It is day 502834023842 of the virus, and I thought I’d share the Corona Cat fabric that I created. It is available for purchase on Spoonflower here: https://www.spoonflower.com/en/fabric/9851540-corona-cat-by-kristinbell Right now they are a bit backed up with orders overall, but Corona Cat is worth the wait. Also, as soon as I get my proofs, I’ll be adding other colorways of Corona Cat including rainbow!!! Corona Cat hopes to keep you safe from the virus.

C++ Tip for Accessing Derived Class Functions Indirectly

2020, base class, c++, coding, computer science, Computers, Computing, derived class, functions, inheritance, pointers, static cast, tables

So, if you are a newb coder like me, and you are studying inheritance, and it all just seems to come crashing down when you can’t seem to access a derived class’s function, take heart! There’s always a way. Just passing along info. gleaned from the interwebs that was used in my team’s code that I found VERY helpful! See image above for more.
